Want to improve your cycling fitness and performance? I’m so excited to offer INSCYD Performance Testing to athletes and cyclists who want to truly optimize performance and get the most out of their time spent training.
What is INSCYD Performance Testing and Metabolic Profiling?
INSCYD is the most advanced tool to analyze and plan endurance performance in athletes. Forget the uncertainty of whether you are doing the right training and fueling. With INSCYD you will always achieve the desired effect and reach your goals.
Performance Testings provides us with a complete performance profile and metabolic map of an athlete with a simple field test. The performance profile allows us to measure and quantify your unique physiological characteristics (aerobic capacity, efficiency, anaerobic capacity, fueling demands, etc.), resulting in a laser-focused training plan to improve performance and reach goals.
Here’s a sample report:
INSCYD software provides the same level of accuracy as lab testing, with a much deeper look at an athlete’s individual metabolic capacities. It measures exactly how the body’s energy systems work together, helping us to identify exactly where we should put our training focus to optimize performance.
INSCYD Performance Testing identifies the most important metrics for training purposes:
- VO2max (aerobic capacity)
- Anaerobic threshold
- Lactate accumulation and recovery
- Fat and carbohydrate combustion (my personal favorite!)
- VLamax (anaerobic capacity)
Every sport performance is predictable and can be broken down to these fundamental elements.
If you’re using FTP or heart rate zones alone to determine training, you are missing out on maximizing both accuracy and efficiency.
With INSCYD Performance Testing you’ll get full picture of your physical capacities and also a prediction of your training and racing outcomes. Never before have we been able to measure all these metrics outside of a lab setting and in one simple test.
What makes INSCYD Performance Testing Unique:
• Athletes can complete the test protocol remotely in less than 90 minutes following a simple protocol of 4 intervals
• We will produce the most complete and accurate metabolic profile available today
• Results are as accurate or more accurate than laboratory testing, and less expensive
• It is the only physiological assessment tool which captures aerobic and anaerobic performance
• Men and women are physiologically different – INSCYD takes sex differences into account, providing a
different calculation for women.
Who Benefits from INSCYD Performance Testing?
- All athletes
- All-level Cyclists with a power meter or smart trainer
Understand Fueling Needs & Dial in your Nutrition Strategy
With INSCYD performance testing, we can identify your precise fueling strategy to ensure peak performance. Based on your power wattage output, we will know exactly how many grams of carbohydrate you body will need to maintain performance. Conversely, we can also identify the maximum fat combustion rates to help us maximize fat loss during low-intensity training phases. Coach Sofi is an expert at pairing Periodized Nutrition strategies with Periodized Training to maximize the training adaptations you are aiming to achieve. (i.e. Fat loss, Aerobic Efficiency, Peak Performance, Ultra-distance)
Thoroughly tested by pro teams and coaches
Derived and based only on fundamental, peer reviewed basic science, INSCYD’s Power-Performance testing is used by the highest ranked cyclists and triathletes around the world. It has been tested by teams JUMBO-VISMA, CCC Team, Alpecin-Fenix, SEG Racing as well as by many WorldTour
coaches and coaching businesses.
